(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, 08 DEC – The American House of Congress approved by a very large majority a bipartisan law that lays the foundations to be able to punish China for the treatment reserved for the Muslim minority of Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region. A similar text had already been approved by the Senate. The provision speaks of a “brutal campaign of repression with mass incarceration, torture and forced labor” and authorizes the State Department to create a ‘black list’ of entities that collaborate with the Chinese government in the repression of ethnic and religious minorities.
